One of the better adventure games I've played in a long time. While this game suffers from lots of back-tracking, it doesn't really borrow any other frustrations from its genre specific brethren. No pixel hunts. No insanely illogical puzzles. This leaves you, the player, to settle down to a fascinating story. The cognitive abilities make for a nice way to expound the narrative without being overly cheesy. While the voice acting broke in places, it was very enjoyable overall. The same goes for the soundtrack. What gripped me was the dark story told in a very unique way. And it was surprisingly complex.
I also appreciate the very timely auto-saves, since this game will let you make mistakes (very little hand-holding). I encountered graphical issues, some odd game behavior, and a few odds and ends that didn't quite fit with the otherwise brilliantly polished game, but none of those issues took away from the overall experience.
Even with its issues, this is a must play game for adventure fans. Its even recommendable to non fans of the genre if you simply enjoy a good story. I'd recommend some old-fashioned pen and paper (or use the in-game note system) to help with a couple of the puzzles that make sense, but draw on multiple clues. I'd also recommend lots of saves, since some of the scenes can jump multiple times before giving you back the controls. (this was mostly only noticeable in the last episode as they closed out a lot of story in that one). I.E. lots of back to back cut scenes and conversations while you are itching to try something in the game.
